HISTORY OF KAPPA DELTA RHO PROVISIONAL CHAPTER
What started out as only a thought soon turned into a dream and that dream became a reality.
It was great to say we had
started a new fraternity at Bryant since we belive in the Greek way of life and felt a new organ1zation could help both Greeks and the Bryant Community.
At first several national fraternities
were contacted and then a fr1end sugpested Kappa Delta Rho. we learned what KDR had to offer we decided to set up a chaoter. The reason KDR was chosen was because of its emohasis on cuality and the closeness among its brothers. We awaited a final decision from the Greek Letter Council for about six weeks.
Finally on Aoril 24,
1984 the G.L.C.
accepted KDR as a new fraternity at Bryant College.
first time in 17 years there was a new fraternity at Bryant "We all JUSt JUmped uo and hugr;led each f1nally made it.", the G.L.C.

It was our duty to assign
certain people for each function.
These brothers were
responsible for obtaining all alcohol and other necessary mater1als.
They were also responsible for refilling all

The first or second week of October is designated PARENTS WEEKEND at Bryant College.
weekend the brothers of Kappa Delta Rho hold a social hour on Saturday afternoon for the parents of brothers and the parents of rushes.
This year I organized the social hour
because of my experience in catering and in food service in general.
Approximatley four weeks prior to the weekend I spoke with my former employer and ordered a variety of hors'dovers for the occasion.
I then asked one of my
brothers to make arrangements for beverages.
I gave him an
idea of what we wanted to serve and what we could spend. The day of the party I picked the food up at the caterers and set it up in our dorm.
CHICKEN WINGS SAUSAGE MEDALLIONS CHEESE AND CRACKERS RED AND WHITE WINE BEER SOFT DRINKS
All the brothers dressed in suits on the day of the event.
The parents were greatly impressed with the fine
JOb that we had done.
The parents of our rushes were
especially impressed with the caliber of men at Kappa Delta Rho.
I believe this was the best aspect of the social hour,
something we really were not olanning on.
